a bag for skylar!!

Skylar Paxton
These are the closest cousins to my kids. We have such a wonderful time when we get together!!

I cant believe I did not take any photos of these two while they were up here. This on our way out the door to the Flint airport at 4:30a.m. in the morning....notice I am nowhere in the picture...
This bag is for my niece Skylar. She and her brother came up for Christmas break. We had a wonderful time making this bag out of vintage fabrics, drinking coffee, making cookies, going to movies or watching them here, shopping, doing our hair and makeup (well...Paxton did not partake in the last two things;)...).

Happy Birthday to my dear Spencer....the big 9 today.

OK,... I know this is not the most flattering picture of me but we are focusing on my first born Spencer in this post. This was Christmas morning 2009. I forgot to buy them new jammies this year. Now I know why I buy them new jammies....for all the pictures we take on Christmas morning. I remember my photos always had me looking like a bomb had gone off in my head and my jammies were always weird.
This is Spencer's favorite candy bar.

This is a great photo of him. He has matured so much in the last few months. Hard for me to explain.

This was his favorite gift. It took him about 5 hours to put it together.

We went skiing tonight for his birthday. He is starting to get really good.
I am wanting to go on a cruise this year.....we may have to take a trip out to Colorado next year.
He got to go over a jump in the hill...thought he was big stuff. Owen freaked out that he did not get to do it. Maybe next time!!!
Happy birthday my wonderful son!! Can hardly believe you're half way to 18 (yikes!!!) I need to catalog more of my life with my boys. It is fun to look back. If I can figure out my scanner I will put some photos of when he was younger. We just got a new computer so the oldest photo I have on here is 3 months ago.
